Rent a car in Cambodia via TravelSupermarket to see the highlights of this eternally enchanting Asian nation...
Located between Vietnam and Thailand in south-east Asia, Cambodia is famed for the extensive ruins of Angkor Wat temple complex, as well as the lively capital, Phnom Penh. The country also boasts miles of stunning, quiet beaches.
Cambodia car hire options provide visitors with the flexibility to enjoy the country at their leisure. International flights arrive at Phnom Penh Airport (PNH), where hire cars can be picked up and visitors can head into the capital, north towards Siem Reap and Angkor Wat, or south to the untouched coastal islands of Sihanoukville.
The best time to visit Cambodia is from November until March, outside of the rainy and hot seasons. Driving around Cambodia is an excellent way to view the more rural areas and the unspoilt and varied countryside. Be aware of local driving etiquette and road signage when driving through Cambodia. The government has invested hugely in road works over the last five years and the roads are always improving. Always check the Foreign Office website before you go to see if you need anything on top of an International Driving Licence.
Be sure to book car rental in Cambodia in advance of your visit to find the cheapest deals. You can collect your rental at Phnom Penh Airport in the south of Cambodia, or book Siem Reap car rental and pick your vehicle up at Siem Reap International Airport (REP), which is in the north of the country.
